Dear Friend,
COVID-19 is causing change all around us, but I want you to know that 88.7 The Cross has not changed. We’re committed to providing you with a place of hope and encouragement in these trying times. As believers, we know that God is in control. He’s commanded us to “fear not,” and we remember Jesus has overcome the world. These are the truths that guide us as we move forward, with peaceful hearts, together. We’re praying for you, our families, our local communities, and our state and national leaders.

God Bless,
Sheryl Ford
General Manager

I just want to say thanks to all essential workers. And the company's that have adapted to help those still working be safer and still remain working. Also, my brother Mike Hatten. Not only did he do more than enough tours overseas, but when he returned home an average job just wasn't enough.

My wife, Kathy, is a NICU RN, at Ochsner's in Monroe. I want her, and all her co-workers to know they are being prayed for. It seems that there has been a lot of "love" shown to our local hospitals. But, I notice that it MOSTLY goes to the other 2. Ochsner's employees deserve the same recognition/appreciation. And, I'm not just talking about the nurses, even though I AM partial.

I just wanted to thank all the essential employees for what they are doing. They could choose to not continue their employments, but then we'd all be in a an even more serious situation. They truly are the heros!! Thank you for all your sacrifices during this tragic time. You all truly are a little lights in this dark world.

I also want to mention the non-essential employees who are not working at this time. They are still very much essential to our life and I pray for them everyday. Listening to the Cross gives me the inspiration I need to get me through the day, everyday! I'm thankful for this radio station! May God Bless Everyone!

To those that work in the medical field: thank you for you’re hard work and dedication. You put yourself and your families at risk to do what you can to save others. That does not go unnoticed, it isn’t taken lightly! You are thought about and prayed for daily in this trying time. May God bless you and keep you as you serve your community and other communities.

I want to thank the Lord for all those working to combat this epidemic. Not just drs and nurses, but personal care workers who go into homes of those who are unable to take care of themselves. The special needs and disabled need these workers. Some of them have no family to help them take care of themselves. They go above and beyond to protect and tend to their needs.

Essential workers, words cannot begin to express how much I appreciate each one of you! Every time I pass an essential employee, I am overwhelmed with gratitude. If you decided not to come to work, I wouldn't have a way to feed my four children. I do not know where we would be without each of you putting others before yourselves and your own health. I am eternally grateful for each of you! To the medical field employees, you are the front line of defense against this frightening virus. As this virus singles out individuals and keeps them from being with their families & friends, you have become their providers, their nurses, their friends and their family. Some of you are even quarantining yourselves from your own families in an effort to continue to fight without endangering the ones you love. I cannot begin to imagine how difficult, how stressful this ever changing environment is for you. After a long, hard day, you aren't able to be comforted by your own loved ones. You are completely alone; only surrounded by illness. I can only imagine the loneliness and depression that some of you are probably facing. One thing I can say for sure, we will NEVER forget this time and everything YOU have sacrificed for the fight against this virus. May God bless you and keep you! To all medical staff and essential workers: Thank you, God bless you and know you and your family are constantly in our thoughts and prayers <3

88.7 The Cross is working with community leaders to provide accurate and timely updates as we navigate how COVID-19 could affect NELA.

You’ll find valuable information and links to regularly updated websites below.

“STAY AT HOME” ORDER

On March 22, Gov. Edwards issued a Stay at Home Order, directing all Louisiana residents to shelter at home and limit movements outside of their homes beyond essential needs. What does this mean? It means that everyone should avoid going out in public unless it is absolutely necessary. The Stay at Home order will end on the morning of Monday, April 13, which is when schools are scheduled to re-open. Governor Edwards will re-evaluate the order before it expires. To see the official Stay at Home Order from the Governor, click here.

“PRESIDENT TRUMP’S DECLARATION OF DISASTER”

President Donald Trump declared a major disaster exists in the State of Louisiana and ordered federal assistance. He has authorized extra money to be allocated to our state, to help with the growing need and ordered assistance to supplement recovery efforts in the areas affected by COVID-19. Learn more about what that means, by clicking here. You can follow the President’s updates by visiting WhiteHouse.gov.

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP PROTECT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY?

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue. 
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
